Top Five Favorites*:

Heart's Blood by Juliet Marillier
Juliet Marillier, historical fantasist, tackles Beauty and the Beast with stunning prose and originality.

Impossible by Nancy Werlin
Young heroine Lucy must untangle a family curse that is tied into the folk song "Scarborough Fair," before she gives birth to her daughter and goes mad like her mother. Wonderful writing, complex characterizations, magical realism more than pure fantasy.

John Dies at the End by David Wong
A horror spoof and horror story bizarrely blended in one of the funniest and creepiest books I've ever read.

The Magicians by Lev Grossman
Harry Potter for grown-ups, dark fantasy with nods to the Chronicles of Narnia, The Phantom Tollbooth, The House With a Clock In Its Walls, definitely a fantasy novel for the literary snobs among us. Disturbing and excellent.

The Virgin of Small Plains by Nancy Pickard
A fascinating mystery about a long-unsolved murder shakes up a small town in Kansas. Compelling and intricate, with a tightly woven, incredibly satisfying plot.

*It's hard to compare a book I read early in the year with one I read within the last few months, so this is a pretty arbitrary list based on what I remember of them now. However, what makes them stand out is how much they kept me turning the pages and how likely I would be to recommend them to friends. The list of books I would not recommend is much shorter, and probably I could make a bottom five list much more easily, but that just wouldn't be polite....

Calculating God by Robert J. Sawyer
The Rumpelstiltskin Problem by Vivian Vande Velde

Favorite new (to me) author:

Robert J. Sawyer

I really enjoy keeping a list. It makes me feel so accomplished every time I finish another book and write it down. And then I read more, and then I feel more accomplished, and then I read MORE... it's a beautiful cycle. So I think I'll keep it up for another year. It's great keeping it on LJ because wherever I am when I finish a book, if there's internet, I can write it down.
